session 1 / TBD

Diversity & Representation

Marketers are grappling with the responsibility of ensuring that the messages they put out into the world are inclusive of the people they are trying to reach. This is no longer an invisible issue, but a priority with serious business imperatives and the magnifying lens of an increasingly aware public.

As companies are beginning to navigate the sea change, there is a lot of headway to make. This Session will seek to diagnose the issue and what progress is being made towards a more equitable media environment and what marketers can do to shift the tides.

Staying Competitive In A World Ruled By Walled Gardens


Marketers are demanding more from their data, but behemoths like Facebook and Google’s walled gardens are limiting the amount of information shared.
